True Healing Takes Time In Homeopathy

One of the biggest myths about healing is that it happens as an event. The belief of most people in the western world is that when they are sick, they can just take a drug, and feel better very quickly and that is the end of it. We know this to be a little different from the homeopathic perspective.

     My teacher Vega Rozenberg taught his students repeatedly that "Time is Mercy".  This Kabbalah understanding really does apply to the healing process. It can make all of the difference in how you view a case and proceed when you know this. If you have a clear understanding of what is asking to be healed, then it is easier to know where a person is in their healing process.

      I find often that in chronic or constitutional prescribing the client will be feeling much better after some period of time. My expectation is that there is noticeable movement in the case after one month. But many times it is within a few months...

Homeopathic Prescribing in Stages of Health

There are three main stages of health that any individual may express. The first stage is good health which would indicate constitutional homeopathic prescribing. The second stage would be more acute/chronic where pathology has taken over. And the third stage is shortly before death. It is good to understand these stages of health when doing any evaluation of your client.

The first stage of health is the stage that most homeopaths are prescribing for. This is the stage where the person is in fairly good health and looking for better health. They may have occasional colds or flu and some aches and pains but is in fairly good health with strong vitality. This is where prescribing becomes for the person in their totality and the homeopath is looking for patterns in the person's life that may lead to a very good homeopathic remedy. At this stage, it is very important to do good homeopathy although the person does not depend on the results to maintain a healthy or happy life. This...

Approaching Death With Homeopathy

As homeopaths, our highest goal is to cure in a gentle way without causing harm. Many times we see miracles of healing. To expect to save a life is a very real expectation for homeopaths. Yet we do not get to choose the length of a person's life or whether they heal or not. Even the best of homeopathy may not always save a life. How then do we treat a person when death is approaching?

There are really only two ways that death comes to visit us; suddenly by trauma or slower as a result of dis-ease. When we are involved in a trauma that is life-threatening always give remedies based on the trauma. If it is not the person's time to leave their life then all attempts to save their life will be utilized by the vital force. Since we do not get to choose it is always best to continue to treat until death does occur. The remedy that may help the best will be for the trauma.

The other way that death can approach is when dis-ease has finally brought the person to their end days. This is...

Accidents From a Homeopathic Perspective

"It was an accident," she said. How often do we hear words similar to this? In case-taking I hear them more often than you can believe. Yet from where I sit as the Homeopath, I do not believe there are any accidents.

When I hear someone say they had an accident I really pay attention to what was happening to them before and after the accident as well as the details of their story. More often than not there will be a thread of this story that came to a head during the accident and the energy of this accident was with them all along.

We might say that it is a random chance that two individuals would walk around a corner and bump into each other. A random act we usually do not take notice of. When two individuals traveling in cars at high-speed bump into each other we notice this very much because the consequences are much greater. When events like this happen I see them as a wake-up call. It is time to stop and look for patterns in life that lead to the big "event".

It takes two...

Obstacles to Cure in Homeopathy

Many times after giving the correctly chosen homeopathic remedy we may see a response but not the results we may expect. It can be difficult to ascertain whether the remedy is really working or whether there is an obstacle to cure. We must investigate closely the conditions for healing in the home as well as any medicinal substances the person may be taking. Homeopathic management in this modern drugged society can be difficult indeed.

      It is best before ever evaluating the remedy to evaluate the client and determine the obstacles to cure. There is often drug therapy that the person has been on for their malady. This will make your job significantly more difficult, but not impossible. If the person is on 3 drugs there is a 50% chance that there will be a new symptom that is a result of the drug therapy. If the person is on 5 or more drugs it is a 100%  fact that there will be a new symptom as a result of the body's response to the combined...

Synchronicity in Homeopathy

Many times in a person's story they will speak about events in their life that seem to defy all odds of occurrence. When this happens we usually say that there was some synchronicity. That two currents of life flowed together to form a larger and succinctly timed event. If the event has a negative connotation we usually say it was an accident. But if the event has a more positive or serendipitous quality, then we say it was an event of synchronicity.

      These events happen more often than we may think. Many times they occur with such common and everyday matters they may go unnoticed. If we were more aware of our everyday thoughts and actions we may very well see how the universe is supporting us perfectly all of the time.  Often after taking homeopathic remedies and experiencing a healing response, we become more aware of our life and thoughts and will make more connections in our daily lives. For someone who has not experienced this before it...

Changing Remedies in Homeopathic Prescribing

In the course of homeopathic prescribing we often come to a time in the case where it's not very clear what is happening and we are tempted to change the remedy. Sometimes this can be premature. Other times it is the most appropriate thing to do. So the question is, "How do we know when it is time to change the remedy?".

After taking the case and giving the remedy the next important step is the first follow-up. At this time it is necessary to determine if the remedy has worked. The best way to determine this is by looking for ways that there is movement in the case. How have things started to change? Has there been any shift in their mental state?  The one thing I hear consistently is that there is a greater sense of well-being. This shift I notice in almost every case. Look for a movement that the vital force is responding to and a shift is occurring. Sometimes it's as simple as seeing the ways that the little things in their life are easier.

If this...

Anxiety Attacks in Homeopathy

One of the more common complaints from clients is anxiety attacks. It seems in this hurried modern world we live in more and more people are having anxiety attacks during the course of their day. There might be many reasons for these, especially from the allopathic diagnosis (Hormone imbalance, thyroid deficiency, mental disorder, etc.) but nothing takes the place of simple case-taking and understanding of how the person is responding to their thoughts or environment.

When someone complains of anxiety attacks it is important to ask them to tell you a story about when this happens. From their story, you will glean much about what it is that is triggering them. Sometimes it may be a closed room or the stuffy feeling that they were experiencing. Other times it might be the presence of a crowd or riding in an elevator. It would be important to know if it was the closed areas of the elevator or the movement that frightened them. Sometimes it is the anticipation of an...

The Observer in Homeopathic Healing

I believe I have discussed Hering's Law of cure and the healing response in previous newsletters, but what I want to share today is a subtle indication that a remedy may be working. As a quick reminder, Hering's Law of Cure states that we heal from the top down, inside out, from most recent symptoms to more distant and from most vital to least vital organs. This seems pretty straightforward.

In nearly every case I have seen there will be one or more aspects of this law that is apparent during a person's healing. Often I hear how the client is doing better and has a greater ability to see their own thoughts and process. It is like their thoughts have not changed yet but their attachment to them is different. I call this the "observer". When a client reports that they can really "see" their stuff and observe their own thought patterns it is telling me that they are healing.

When this phenomenon exists it is in perfect alignment with Hering's Law of Cure. The dis-ease has moved from...

Remedy Relationships in Homeopathy

It is important to know about the remedies in our Materia Medica and their relationships. I often see a case improve dramatically with a given remedy but not go on to cure. With a little knowledge of remedy relationships, some of the more perplexing cases can be improved by giving a complementary remedy to the first remedy prescribed. It must always be that this second remedy is indicated and not just given routinely.

When you see a child with recurrent high fevers that yield to Belladonna, but the fevers continue to reoccur then often Calcarea Carbonica will be the chronic remedy for these acute states.

Natrum Muriaticum sustains the same chronic relationships to  Apis and Ignatia. It stands to reason since Natrum Muriaticum shares many common themes with both of them. One can see the relationship between the crystalline structure of Salt and the crystalline structure of the honeycomb and crystallizing of honey. Often it will be difficult to tell the difference in...
